Marine Tex does not cost any more than West epoxy and you do not have to add a filler to thicken it. It is very easy to work with until you have to sand it.

I wasn't suggesting that the void be filled with epoxy. i was suggesting the op call their tech people for expert advice - which is free.

If I was looking at a boat that had been damaged this much and repaired with expert advice and well done it would not be a deal breaker.

If I was looking at a boat with the same amount of damage and the owner just used either foam or Marine Tex and glassed it over without the advice of an expert I would pass.
